Zombies, Run!

By Six to Start

This app is only available on the App Store for iOS devices.


Get ready for the run of your life. Join 4 million runners on an epic adventure!

You tie your shoes, put on your headphones, take your first steps outside. You’ve barely covered 100 yards when you hear them. They must be close. You can hear every guttural breath, every rattling groan - they’re everywhere. Zombies. There’s only one thing you can do: Run!

Zombies, Run! is an ultra-immersive running game and audio adventure, co-created with award-winning novelist Naomi Alderman. Every run becomes a mission where you’re the hero, with our immersive audio drama putting you at the centre of your very own zombie adventure story. While you run to the perfect mix of heart-pumping audio drama and pulse-pounding songs from your own playlist, you’ll collect supplies to grow your base back home.

BBC NEWS - “The only way to save yourself is to run for real.”
WIRED - “In the style of Runkeeper, with an exciting undead twist.”
LIFEHACKER - “A really cool way to get outside and exercise.”
CNN - “Turns exercise into a game - a terrifying, terrifying game.”
TIME - "Takes all the fun of a zombie game and funnels it into a fitness app."

“Evaded all zombie mobs :-) One of my best sprints ever; this app works!”
“This game will make you sweat. Perfect junction between game design and run tracker.”
“Just tried @zombiesrungame and for the first time in my life I feel truly alive.”

Zombies, Run! works anywhere and at any speed. You can jog in a park, run along a beach, or walk along a trail. It even works on treadmills!

Hundreds of lives are counting on you. You’ve got to rebuild your base from a few shivering survivors into a fortified beacon of civilization by collecting critical supplies and avoiding roving zombie hordes. Can you save them and learn the truth about the zombie apocalypse?

You become the hero in an epic story of humanity’s struggle for survival where your running really matters, and there’s a deeper mystery to be uncovered as well. Play the first four missions for free and unlock one extra mission every week.

Unlock 260+ story missions for unlimited play, plus Interval Training and Airdrop Mode.

Choose your own custom playlists: the story unfolds in between your tracks through a series of dynamic radio messages and voice recordings.

Saving the world not exciting enough? When you hear zombies on your six, it’s time to speed up. Can you escape every mob or will you drop some of your hard-earned supplies to distract them?

Every run, you’ll automatically collect vital supplies like medicine and ammo. Use supplies to build your very own post-apocalypse community. Do you strengthen your defences against the zombies or build a new farm? Share the results with your friends and find out who can make the brightest future for humanity.

Extremely Motivational

Two years this app has been a part of my exercise, and it has continued to be an amazing experience.

You know when you look back at your college years or something similar and think of all the great times you’ve had? I do that constantly with this app. I think back to oh yeah I was running past a lighthouse during that scene. Or yeah I totally flipped off an imaginary helicopter and ran the farthest and fastest I ever had before in a desperate imaginary race to save an imaginary character.

The voice acting and writing is phenomenal. The immersion is incredible if you let yourself really get drawn in.

I am on Season 6, but Season 1 sound when I started was lower budget but then Season 2 BOOM you can tell they got money and put it to good use.

My head is always on a swivel due to the incredible sound manipulation that makes me want to look in the direction of the narrated action and I find myself barking with laughter or crying out with shock at a plot twist.

This app is the only reason I run. Dead slow pro 12 minute mile pace is my avg across all the runs I have done, but I feel like I rule those runs as Runner 5 and I am always motivated to make it to the end as strong as I can be especially when being told to pick up the pace or just simply RUN!


I’ve been supporting this app since a month or so after its release. Don’t get me wrong, I love it, but I remember getting rid of it on my old phone because I needed space. Back from my old phone, this app had an interesting twist for a running app, immersive story, unique characters, and a cool book. (I really recommend the book.)

But coming back now? What the hell happened? Look, I’ll cut to the chase here, I’m a student. I can’t afford to pay for a monthly or yearly subscription for content that should be accessible for free. The radio station for example, used to be free. Now I have to pay for it? I have to pay to see my own statistics? That’s a foul move. I understand that having a free app needs to have some sort of way to make money, but this is really a slap to the face to those that supported this app from the very beginning, and to those who really can’t afford to spend four dollars a month.

Good way to get in shape

I downloaded this about a year ago around Halloween. I have been working my way through the story missions. They missions are made up of episodes that steadily increase in time, so it’s a great way to gradually increase the length of your runs while being distracted by chases and odd scenarios. The story line is engaging but allows for lapses where you can just listen to your music. There is also an option for run/walk training if you don’t want to follow the missions. The app tracks the distance and time of each run. It’s helped me change up my routine and increase the time I devote to running as I will not let myself advance in the mission storyline until I’ve done the previous episode. Highly recommended
